|Ribe as seen from Commoner's Tower of Ribe Domkirke.|
Have you ever been to a town that is so cute you just want to pinch its chubby little cheeks? Ribe is Denmark’s oldest town which means, as is true for many ancient towns, it is oozing with charm. With Denmark’s oldest cathedral, oldest town hall, oldest hotel, cobblestone streets (if you can, arrange for them to be slightly wet and shiny from a recent light drizzle), red brick and half-timbered houses topped with mossy roofs, a Viking history, and its very own breed of dog, Ribe will be one of the most delightful stops on your Denmark vacation itinerary.

While we were traveling through Denmark we discovered a different kind of traveler accommodation, the holiday home or holiday cottage. We learned the Danes holiday in a few different ways. Sometimes they stay in hotels, sometimes they camp, and sometimes they stay in holiday homes or cottages like those at Ribe Byferie. While we visited Ribe we stayed in one of Ribe Byferie’s holiday homes so we could experience a Danish holiday.

Portland, Oregon can be a little chilly and a little rainy. While these characteristics can sometimes make it gloomy and somewhat unpleasant to be outside, they are also key in making Portland’s outdoor attractions green and beautiful. Visitors to Portland will want to visit some of these outdoor gems, and people traveling with their furry companions will be happy to learn that many of Portland’s outdoor attractions are dog friendly. Here are five of our favorite dog friendly outdoor attractions from our visit to Portland.

|Catalina Island, Hollywood's playground.|
It stands to reason that Catalina Island would have seen a lot of Hollywood history. Catalina Island is within easy traveling distance from Los Angeles after all. It’s even part of Los Angeles County. But before we toured the Catalina Island Museum I had no idea how much Hollywood history had touched Catalina Island.

A common question asked during a round of golf is, “How long you been playin’?” I like to say my game is of legal drinking age. So, as a seasoned golfer, I have mastered the art of the excuse after a mediocre round on a fantastic course. My handicaps for this particular round of golf at Kauai Lagoons Golf Club were as follows:

Throughout our travels Romeo and I have stayed in quite a mix of accommodations. We have rested our heads in little bed and breakfasts, historical hotels, dog friendly motels, thatched-roof cabanas and luxury resorts. During our recent stay at Marriott’s Kauai Lagoons we were spoiled with island luxury and it got me thinking about experiencing other luxury accommodations with a unique spin. Here are a couple unique luxury resorts I’ve found that I’d love to visit.
